Dewey Quote #151

Quote from Dewey in Forwards Backwards

Lois: Okay, hold still.
Dewey: I don't think I want to be in this play. Now, I've been doing some reading, and this Lincoln person wasn't such a great guy. Did you know that the Emancipation Proclamation wasn't about slavery at all? It was strictly a political move.
Lois: Honey, you're just nervous 'cause you've never had a part with lines before. Or where you move.
Dewey: For the love of God! He suspended the writ of habeas corpus in Maryland!

Quote from Craig

Craig: Isn't this interesting? Once more, I'm the only person that can help you. I'm your best friend when you need someone to pick up your mail or sit on a suitcase, but when it's time for a barbecue, I have to watch from the car. I got to tell you, Hal, this beer is tasting mighty bitter. [drinks] I'll take another.
Hal: Are you going to help me or not?
Craig: I will help you. But one day - and that day may never come - I will ask you to perform a service for me. Actually, it'll be tomorrow. I'll be here about 10:00, and if it's nice, wear a bathing suit.

Quote from Malcolm

Malcolm: You know, while I was ripping down all those flyers, I was racking my brain trying to come up with some way to get back at you. And I began to wonder. What's the point? No matter how hard I try, nothing ever stops you. Maybe you're just better at this than I am.
Reese: Well, yeah.
Malcolm: Then again, maybe we should ask your friends what they think.
Reese: What?
Malcolm: Your friends. These are friends, aren't they? You're always hanging out with them or near them anyway. Hey, do any of you know this kid's name? This kid right here. Do any of you know his name? [they shake their heads] But he's always following you around. You never noticed him before? So he's been sitting right next to you for months just pretending to be your friend? Wow. That's sad. Well, uh, his name's Reese. And guess what? I'm better than you. I win. It's over.

Quote from Craig

Hal: All right, two scoops, fudge ripple. Now are we going to the comic book store?
Craig: [imitates Yoda] Patience, Luke. You are reckless.
Hal: We've gone to the beach, we've gone to the movies. I won you an animal at the church bazaar. We've gone out for coffee, lunch, Slushees, pie.
Craig: [normal voice] I can't negotiate unless I'm firing on all cylinders.
Hal: Just how many cylinders do you have?
Craig: Pull over.
Hal: No, you're right. I'm sorry. That was uncalled for.
Craig: Pull over.
Hal: Craig, I am not pulling over.
Craig: Just let me out of the car.
Hal: Craig, I am not stopping this car. [Craig blows a whistle] All right, all right! Calm down.
Craig: You are going to have to learn how to get along without Craig Feldspar. My ducky. [toy squeaks]
